INTERVIEW: Bryan Craig and Kelly Thiebaud on Morgan and Britt Possibly Crossing Paths on GH


Kelly Thiebaud, Bryan Craig
On screen, General Hospital’s Morgan (Bryan Craig) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) have never interacted. Off screen, the actors who play the morally-ambiguous children of two of Port Charles’s most notorious criminals are a couple.

On red carpet at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmys, the duo discussed their relationships with their on-screen parents, their characters’ quests to reunite with their exes and whether Britt and Morgan will ever meet.
Daytime Confidential: Is Britt the worst doctor ever?

Kelly Thiebaud: She shouldn’t even be a doctor. I don’t even know how she’s allowed to set foot in the hospital.

DC: Are we ever going to see the two of you together on GH? Britt and Morgan never cross paths.

KT: We’re hoping.

Bryan Craig: They’re doing things to bring our characters closer and closer to meeting. She’s running into people that I’m related to and vice versa, so it could happen. We honestly don’t know. We hope that it does.

DC: Your characters have common ground; you both had relationships end because of issues surrounding the conception of a child.

BC: I don’t really see how either of our relationships could be rekindled after what’s happened between [Britt] and [Nik] and [Morgan] and [Ava.]  But it’s a soap opera and anything can happen.

DC: Both of your characters have complicated relationships with your parents. Can you talk about what it’s been like working with Maurice Benard and Kathleen Gati?

KT: It’s really fun. I mean, Kathleen is very talented and works really hard. We have a great connection which makes it fun when I have scenes with her and brings this playful, devious attitude to the show and towards my character, so it makes it fun for me. I enjoy that relationship a lot.

BC: I’ve become really close with Maurice Benard, who plays my dad, Sonny. I have a great time working with him.

DC: Ava and Morgan are the most scandalous couple on the show. Did you realize how popular they would become when their relationship began?

BC: I had no idea what they would be. It was such a strange situation and I think it still is. But people seem to like it. People like weird.

DC: Morgan has amazing sexual radar. He walked into the crypt and instantly knew that Sonny and Ava slept together. How did he figure it out?

BC: Morgan has a lot of sex, obviously.

DC: Britt learned she has a brother. What sort of relationship are she and Nathan (Ryan Paevey) going to develop?

KT: They’ve been having us have random encounters here and there. I’m really looking forward to a family reunion with Donna Mills and Michelle Stafford. That would be really cool.

    I kinda wanna see KT and MS in scenes together, their characters are cousins after all. I also would like to see B and M meet, it would be nice, but not really more. I think it takes away a lot from the excitement if real life couples are on screen couples too. It just makes it contrived.

    I don’t mind if Britt and Morgan have scenes together.Plus since Britt is Ava’s doctor and since Ava is possibly carrying Morgan’s child that could be a good way for the 2 characters to interact.However i just Morgan and Britt to just be friends and nothing more.

    Eh. I don’t see Brit/Morgan being anything of interest. I AM however very interested in Brit and Nina becoming BFF’s. That should already be happening.

    As for Morgan… for me he’s the “it” guy on GH. He’s sexually the most interesting, and his work as an actor is constantly surprising. It’s a shame they are moving on from Ava/Morgan, because they were fascinating together. Keep Kaka away from him please! I really wish Morgan were bisexual because I’m not sure what ladies on the show currently I can really see him with. I do like the idea of continuing the streak with older women… it suits him. But I just don’t see he and Brit being interesting. It’s worth a scene or two, though.

      The scenes with Morgan and Olivia were very good, but then I think those two actors can generate chemistry with inanimate objects and make it work(also loved the too-brief scene with Olivia and Ned during the Nurses’ Ball red carpet). But I think you’re right, pairing the two would go against the fabric of Olivia’s character.

    I DO NOT want to see Morgan and Britt together. It’s annoying that actors want to play out their real life romance onscreen. I don’t care about their real life love. I like Morgan and Ava together an Britt and Nikolas as a couple.

    I’d like to see LLo and IB in some scenes together. There was a small sequence where they crossed paths for a little sit down at the Metro Court a while back and it was quite intriguing. Nice little sparkle there. LLo also had a nice chemistry with TR when he was here and she’s on record as having written him a fan letter when she was a kid, LOL!…..

    Lol, one thing I do agree with that KT said is that Britt shouldn’t be a doctor. Watching over the last week or so I’ve come to realize that this show has the absolute worst health care “professionals” around–Britt, Obrecht, Brad, that cartoonish nurse of Nina’s, not to mention her physical therapist who was bought off fairly easily.
